Herbert Bautista Recalls His ‘Past’ with Lea Salonga

Former actor and now Quezon City Mayor Herbert Bautista recalled his past with Lea Salonga on Gandang Gabi Vice on August 11 episode.

Bautista told host-comedian Vice Ganda that, back then, he tried to express his feelings for Salonga through poetry.

The actor turned politician is now blessed with two children by live-in partner Tates Gana.

His youngest child is now eight years old, who regularly appears in the children’s gag show Goin’ Bulilit, while the girl, who is fifteen is musically-inclined and she already exudes a beauty queen appeal.

On the other hand, Salonga is married to Robert Charles Chien, a Chinese-Japanese executive of Ambient Media in 2004.

The couple met while Salonga was doing ‘Flower Drum Song’ in US.

Two years after their wedding, Salonga gave birth to their daughter Nicole.

Salonga shares that her relationship with Chien is really good.

Her husband is very understanding and very supportive whenever she has a show and he always encourages her in her career.

Meanwhile, the international singer is one of the coaches of the show, ‘The Voice Philippines.’

It is a Filipino reality television singing competition on ABS-CBN and is based on the reality singing competition, ‘The Voice of Holland.’

The show is hosted by Toni Gonzaga, while Robi Domingo, and Alex Gonzaga serve as the show’s V-Reporters or the social media correspondents.

Aside from Salonga, Sarah Geronimo, Bamboo Mañalac and Apl.de.Ap serve as the coaches and the judging panel of the show.
